Suspected rhino poachers nabbed in East London in the Eastern Cape Efforts to combat wildlife crimes in the Eastern Cape led to the arrest of three suspects, aged between 28 and 50 years old, for being in unlawful possession of ammunition and other equipment, which is commonly used for rhino poaching. "On Sunday afternoon, members of Gonubie SAPS - together with East London K9 unit, followed up information on suspected rhino poachers," said police spokesperson, Colonel Sibongile Soci. "A white Kia with a Gauteng registration was intercepted and searched on Shaffley Road, East London. "The following items together with the vehicle were seized, several high powered firearm rounds, a panga, torches, a hunting knife, a plier and a rifle bag/sock." Suspected poachers to appear in court Col Soci said that the suspects will appear in the East London Magistrate's Court early this week on charges of unlawful possession of ammunition. Eastern Cape SAPS Provincial Commissioner Lt Gen Liziwe Ntshinga said, “We continue to make significant inroads in tracking down perpetrators of rhino poaching as well as those involved in illegal wildlife trade. Our investigation will also seek to ascertain if the suspects are linked to other rhino poaching incidents in the province/ country”.

Chinese couple arrested with 3.6 Kg of rhino horn at Pemba airport – Mozambique Police in Cabo Delgado have detained a Chinese couple at Pemba Airport after finding 3.6 kilograms of rhinoceros horn hidden in the bottom of a suitcase. The couple were about to board a flight to China. According to a police spokesperson, the origin of the rhino horns was unknown, but police believe they have disrupted an international network that has been decimating wildlife in Mozambique and neighbouring countries. “It was difficult to detect and identify the product, because it was cut into pieces, shaped like slices of bread, and another part was reduced to small cylinders that looked like works of art. But, after examination, it was concluded that what we actually had was rhinoceros horn, and that’s when we detained the owners of the baggage, two citizens of Chinese origin, and formally accused them of trafficking in wildlife resources,” the police spokesman confirmed. Repeated seizures of suspected wildlife and mineral resources traffickers at Pemba Airport are worrying police, who a few months ago began an internal investigation into the possible involvement of corporation agents. In less than a month, a quantity of wildlife and mineral resources about to leave the country illegally has been seized at Pemba Airport. Almost all those detained are of Chinese origin. Police suspect the involvement of their agents because of the security weaknesses identified by traffickers, especially in the latest cases. The alleged traffickers refused to speak to the press, but admitted to police they owned the luggage where the rhino horn was hidden. They said that they were delivering it to the family of a Chinese friend who had lived in Mozambique for several years. This is one of the largest rhino horn seizures at Pemba Airport, which has recently emerged as one of the main trafficking routes for wildlife and mineral resources and illegal immigrants, most of whom arrive in the country with the aim of plundering natural resources.

Today, the anti-poaching team at Sabie Game Park arrested this rhino poacher armed with a silenced .375 rifle, ammo and an axe. Plus, he had two changes of shoes to mislead the tracking team - and enough food to last a few days. #SupportAfricasRangers #AntiPoaching #UniteTheFight #SouthAfrica #RhinoProtectionUnit #RPU #APU #WildlifeWarriors From MozParks Foundation

FACT: Rhino horn is made of keratin, which is the same substance as our hair and fingernails. #repost @councilofcontributors . . . #myth #facts #truth #education #vietnam #pills #artforacause #rhino #savetherhino #antipoaching #endangeredspecies
